The Capitol Theater Will Make You Afraid of the Water Once More This Summer
The Classics At The Capitol dive head first into the ocean this summer with one of the biggest movies of all time–1975’s Jaws directed by Steven Spielberg. Jaws will emerge from the water at The Capitol on July 6th at 7:00 PM, tickets are only $5.00 and will be available at the box office and online.
Based upon Peter Benchley’s 1974 novel of the same name, Jaws is a thrilling story about beachgoers in a New England town being attacked–and eaten–by a giant, great white shark during their Fourth of July weekend. The police chief goes on the hunt for the great beast alongside a marine biologist and local shark hunter. Jaws stars Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss, Lorraine Gary, and Murray Hamilton. The film’s memorable music score was composed by John Williams–the second time Williams and Spielberg worked together.
Jaws will be introduced by local film writer Andy Ross, “When you look at the history of American film, Jaws is one of those films that serves as a signpost of change in Hollywood and American film going,” Ross says. “It invented the Blockbuster style of movie marketing that is still used to this day. Jaws changed everything, and was a career-making film for Spielberg, being his fourth theatrical film. I’m so excited we can bring this one to audiences on the big screen.”
As the summer temperature rise, so will the most famous ocean dweller in all of cinema. Break out of your anchor jacket and come see Jaws on The Capitol’s big screen this July!
